Clubman Run News

Dear members,

November’s “Toy and Presentation Run” was another great success. I must thank Ian for his time and efforts in organizing the handover of Christmas gifts to the Salvation Army Officer. This activity was again a huge success, enabling many disadvantaged families to experience a little joy over Christmas. Also thank you Ian for once again compiling the point scores, organizing the trophies and running the Clubs annual presentation of the varied categories. Your willingness and contributions to our Club is much appreciated by each and every member. The other person I must thank for supporting me on the day was our Vice President Denny.

After planning the run and balancing the numbers of participants who could attend the presentation at Rathmines Bowling Club due to Covid-19 restrictions, I was called away on urgent family matters and could not lead the run. Denny once again took control and led everyone safely, without losing a person to Blackalls Park for an extended morning tea.

Sunday saw an array of members “pride and joys” being driven as they should be, with some even having the top down. Not only were there an array of various historic MG models represented on the day, but the club can now boast the inclusion of Jim and Carolyn Hutton’s new MG- HS, a very stylish luxury motor. Congratulations go to those club members who won their particular category. This also shows the enjoyment, commitment and participation that members can experience from the many activities our club is providing.

Our final Monthly Run for the Year will be a Twilight Run on Saturday night the 12th December. We are leaving from the Club House at 5pm and motoring to our destination at the Junction Inn Hotel Raymond Terrace for a 6.30pm dinner. NB. Please contact me ASAP to secure your position as the Hotel will only accommodate 30 per booking. Hope to see you there.

Have a Happy and Safe Christmas,

Jeff Lauff
